Highlights: Honoring Jerry Dickinson, 3-year deal with the Allegany County IDA, extension of Alfred State contract

By Andrew Harris

The full board of county legislators will be in Belmont today beginning at 2pm. Don’t forget all Allegany County government meetings are live streamed on the County Facebook Page. You do not need a Facebook account to view the livestreams.

The board will start the meeting with recognition of Jerry Dickinson, a longtime county employee. Dickinson has been the JobTrak supervisor and has been a valuable member of the Department of Social
Services in Allegany County for twenty-two years.

A three year contract between the Allegany County Industrial Development Agency and the county will be put to a vote, as well as a resolution to draw the funding from uncommitted county reserves.

Legislators will also be asked to vote on extending the contract between the county and Alfred State College for economic development services. As the county shifts away from what some would call, “The Craig Clark Era,” the newly formed county Office of Economic Development is seeking a full-time director. Current interim director Tim Boyde has advised the board of legislators to maintain the contractual relationship with Alfred State as a key tool during the transition.

Legislators will be addressing plenty of other important business today as well, read the agenda:
